Previously available for $14.95
Interesting aromatics feature a bit of violet and iris along with some earthy root vegetables and peppery nuances under blueberry and black currant fruit sweetened with a nice dose of gingery wood spice. Smooth and polished in the mouth with a very fine vegetal edge that recalls beet roots with it's blend of earthy and sweet elements adding some detail to a palate that shows plenty of blue fruit and floral character. Rather medium weight with some stiff underlying tannins lending this a firm feel that is contrast to the rather bright, fresh fruit on the palate. Very refreshing and frankly a bit austere, finishing with some wood sweetness and a touch of citrus peel. This is an attractive wine at this price point. 87pts

List It
  • 150558moldavi33 I'd like to add Educated Guess to this list. Phenomenal Cab for $20-$25, drinks more like a $40 bottle. Napa fruit, but not overly extracted, and pretty well structured, to boot. Gimmick-y label, but don't let that dissuade you; it's very, very good.

  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Good call Moldavi. A very attractive wine!

  • 12988261206gene I still think the H3 ( Horse Heaven Hills ) cab from Columbia Crest is one of the best bargain cabs around, with plenty of cab character for $11.69 to $15, depending upon where you buy it.

  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Absolutely gene. I serve it blind on occasion and it has no problem keeping up with $20-$25 Cabs. Thanks for the suggestion.

  • 1145575wolfarthe Anything from Waterbrook! Great producer at affordable prices. Merlot is even better than their cabs.
